Gorgeous boy with great ears ISO loving family!LENNON NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!     Name:  Lennon      Best Guess for Breed:  Lab/hound mix      Best Guess for Age:  5 as of June 2021     Sex: Male   Approximate Weight:  45 lbs   Gets Along With:  Other dogs! We haven't seen Lennon with kids or cats but he can be tested.    Currently Living at:  DC area foster home   Special adoption considerations: Lennon tested positive for heartworm disease and was treated on 6/23/2020. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive often suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.  Heartworm dogs can resume full active and normal lives, but need to be kept calm for 4-6 weeks after treatment. We are happy to talk more in depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process.     Lennon is Looking For:  A home where he can get all the love and attention that every dog deserves! He wants long walks and the opportunity to test drive all the toys on the market - balls for fetch? Ropes for tug? Squeaky plush toys to destroy? Definitely frozen treat-filled Kongs! He'll need to stay quiet for a bit till he recovers from heartworm treatment but once he is all set, his personality will come out and he'll be ready to explore your neighborhood and the world with you! Oh, and obedience school would be another great thing for Lennon to do with his adopter, so they learn how to communicate and Lennon knows what is expected of him. What do you say? Do you want to give this VERY GOOD BOY a loving home and get a great buddy out of the deal?   What My Foster Says About Me:  Lennon is a super sweet boy who loves walks and off leash runs. He is excellent with other dogs and loves to play. He sniffs everything and is very food motivated. He is active yet he is good at settling down in the apartment and is great about being in his crate.   Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online HERE .   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption.
